In early December, U.S. and Korean trade negotiators struck a deal that is expected to bring the Korea Free Trade Agreement to the floor of Congress in early 2011. This is the biggest free trade agreement since NAFTA, and is strongly opposed by the largest labor federations in each country.
Hear from Kim Kyung-Ran, director of external relations for the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions, as she:
Inspires us to action with photos and stories from some of South Korea’s largest and most dramatic mobilizations against the FTA to date.
Kim busts the myth that job-killing trade deals that hurt ordinary Americans some how benefit working people in other countries.
Kyung-Ran's stunning 35-minute slide presentation will be followed by short reports from local activists, updating you on the expected impact of the FTA in our region and how you can get involved in local efforts to stop it.
